TINA Musical Project

Tina Turner - Joop Van den ende Musical  - 2015

Queen has We Will Rock You, Abba has Mama Mia, Gloria Estefan just launched her “Get on Your Feet” show…. Musical blockbusters!
Tina Turner’s life has already been portrayed a few times on stage but never a big dimension project. However it seems like things are going to change… After years of mentioning it in several interviews, a real project with an official involvement from Tina herself will probably see the light of the day in the near future thanks to Dutch theatrical producer Joop Van Den Ende.

If it does happen that means that Tina will also get involved in promoting the musical in some sort of way so that’s something to look forward to!
Thanks to DJ for the info!

Mother Within (Heavenly Home)

Tina Turner - Mother Within -Heavenly Home - Motherless Child - Beyond 2015

“Sometimes i am exhausted and driven Lord,
Sometimes i don’t know where to go
My Mother, and Father, don’t own me
So i’ll try to too make Heaven
My Home”

By Ben – Today marks the anniversary of the release last year, of the third album of the so far Beyond trilogy “Beyond, Love Within“. With Tina’s participation on a few songs, the result was once again excellent and haunting; Bringing back her gospel roots while mixing it with her buddhist faith, a challenge for Turner who add another feather in her cap in World Music thanks to the creativity of good friend Regula Curti and the work of Swiss music producer Roland Frei.

Today, we focus once again on ‘Love Within’ but with a new and special upload! The “Heavenly Home” mix version of “Mother Within’ that was not included in the album. A shorter and bit more up-tempo version of the song to put it in a nutshell!

And for the occasion and for all your delight, a new video for the song created by Ben! Enjoy!

Tina Turner in Milano (Updated)

Tina Turner Now 2015

Tina Turner was spotted recently with husband Erwin Bach while shopping in Milano! It is unbelievable to see Tina looking so radiant at 75!

Tina looked more than happy to take a look at all the luxury digs at the storefront as she took a look at a few of the fragrances out on the counter and even tried on a pair of spiffy shades with mirrored lenses.
No doubt the couple received great customer service as they chatted up with the suited and booted workers at the boutique.
The Simply The Best hitmaker went casual chic for the occasion as she donned a black jacket over a leather top, blue trousers and patterned flat shoes.

Too Many Tears in My Eyes

Tina Turner - black & white photo shoot - 1960's - 05

I bet you looked handsome on your wedding day
So strong, so fine, so tall
Though i was standing in the church that day
And i couldn’t see a thing at all”

By Ben – Being a legendary duo, Ike and Tina Turner are part of American popular culture and it is not rare to hear or see references of the notorious duo in movies, series, cartoons… A great opportunity to give a glimpse of the couple’s work to new audience and sometimes the chance to see a not-so-famous Ike & Tina Turner song getting a second life.

Last year, US tv show “True Detective” in an episode entitled “Haunted House” (S1 E06) paid tribute to Ike and Tina using in its soundtrack a rare gem from the couple! In the episode credits and on IMDB the song is listed as “uncredited”. No lyrics nor informations on Google as well…

Until, i found a trace on the internet of a 1963 song written by Johnny Cole and performed by Miles Stones being the original recording of the song. The “Tina version” is just a womanized version of the song. But not just that actually! Out of the massive work produced by Ike Turner and the countless covers, some of them are really superior to the majority.

“Too Many Tears” could remind us of wedding songs such as “All I Could Do Was Cry” or “Please, Please, Please” but it has something more to it. The way Tina delivers the first line hooks you up immediately. The song is very graphic so to speak and would perfectly fit a Tarantino movie or, as it happened, a tv series.

Anyway, i hope you’ll enjoy the song as much as i do! Oh and by the way, in my research, i came across a remix version of the song from the Soul Masters CD that i’ve included in the post!

Screen Entity

Mad Max Thunderdome - Tina Turner - Shooting on Location 1985 9

By Ben – Tina Turner is known throughout the world, blog’s stats can attest that there’s not a single country in the world that doesn’t know her. To most people, she is seen as a bigger than life singer with an unparalleled career. But despite her massive success and what one could perceive as an incredible achievement, Turner often stated that what really attracted her was acting. But not acting just for the sack of being on a big screen no, acting to impersonate a (strong) character, to entertain audience in action, adventure movies. Offers came but not one that would fit Tina’s own vision of a movie star. Who can say no Spielberg? Turner did. Hooker parts? Keep them for yourself! Tina wants to be Grace Jones in Conan the Destroyer, a charismatic villain…

The first footage of Tina Turner on a theater screen goes back to 1970 and her incendiary performance of Otis Redding’s ‘I’ve Been Loving You Too Long” filmed during the Rolling Stones legendary documentary “Gimme Shelter”. However her first appearance as a character would arrive five years later and what other part than a Queen…
